Book: Dynamic Spiritual Leadership (Leading Like Paul) by J. Oswald Sanders

Do you aspire to be a spiritual leader? The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church cannot be overemphasized. In this study of Paul’s life, J. Oswald Sanders highlights the qualities that made Paul the great leader he was: his pioneering spirit, his powerful communication skills, his life of fervent prayer, his wholehearted devotion to Jesus Christ, and his exalted view of God. Let this proven classic be your guide for leadership, and watch how God works through you to do great things for His glory.

Dr. John Oswald Sanders left a promising law practice in his native New Zealand to serve as an instructor and administrator at the Bible College of New Zealand. Later he become general director of Overseas Missionary Fellowship (then known as China Inland Mission) in the 1950s and 1960s, and he was instrumental in beginning many new missions projects throughout East Asia. J. Oswald Sanders not only wrote about leadership but he lived it out.

In this study of Paul’s life we find an inspiring example of what one person, wholly surrendered to God and committed to God’s people, can achieve by simply following Jesus Christ. And even though Paul was merely human, he was a leader with weaknesses just like ours. Paul’s triumphs, as well as his failures, provide valuable lessons in overcoming any obstacle in ministry as we desire to serve Jesus Christ. This book is a great read about what qualities make a great leader and you’ll also find your vocabulary grow too!

Book: The Making of a Man of God (Lessons from the Life of David) by Alan Redpath

Redpath_Book

In this Christian classic, Alan Redpath blends insights from the life of David from 1st and 2nd Samuel, 1st Chronicles, and Psalms to demonstrate how God shapes those who are responsive to his love. David was a shepherd and a king, a soldier and a poet, a sinner and a saint. He was also a man after God’s own heart.

Alan Redpath shows how through the life of David the conversion of a soul is the miracle of a moment, but the making of a saint is the task of a lifetime. You will see this truth most clearly as you learn about the turbulent and triumphant times in the life of the shepherd-king David. And despite his faults, great and small, David became a man who wondrously understood and reflected the mind of a perfect God.

I believe that both men and women will find themselves identifying with David’s struggles and triumphs, and that this book will give you a glimpse of how God is continually shaping you for His glory as well as He did for David.
